Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday took notice of teacher torturing a six-year-old student.
The incident took place in a local school when an implacable teacher brutally beat up a schoolgirl, Moneeba, with a stick that had a nail on it. She severely wounded the child’s hand. The teacher assaulted the student for not learning her lesson.
CM Punjab strongly condemned the act and summoned a report from the Rawalpindi Commissioner as early as possible. He said that education with physical or mental torture is deplorable and needs to be addressed.
Separately, in Jhang’s Chatta Baksha area, a strange punishment was witnessed in a school when nearly 200 children’s heads were shaved for not revising their lecture. The teacher also kept all the students outside the class as part of the punishment.
The students staged a protest inside the school and urged the authorities to take stern action against the teacher.
Meanwhile, the Executive District Officer (EDO) Education Zahid Naseem showed ignorance towards the incident.
